Answer

Ear infections

  • Involvement of the ear can be mild to severe.

  • Pain can be elicited by traction of the tragus or pinna, although pain becomes persistent as the disease progresses.

  • Typical presentations include erythema, edema, pain, and warmth; however, many individuals who are immunocompromised may manifest no signs.
